Circle Monthly Challenge & Sweet Sassy Diva- DT Challenge- Home Sweet Home

Hi All
This week our challenge over at Sweet Sassy Diva our DT challenge was Home Sweet Home, which was also the monthly Circle Challenge.  Here is what the challenge was:
  • Use at least one Cricut Cartridge Cut
  • Use the Cuttlebug in some way (embossing folder, Cuttlebug die, Quilling kit, etc.)
  • Use Felt in some way
  • Use the color GREEN somewhere on your project

For my Home Sweet Home project I altered a candle I had already at the house. Making it into a wonderful gift or centerpiece. I used a leaf punch to cut out all the leaves, and cuttlebuged the brown ones and then inked them. I traced the leaf pattern onto the felt and cut out the leaf. I tried to cuttlebug the felt but it just came out. I glued all leaves to the base of the candle, wrapping them around the candle. Then I cut out the tag from Gyspy Wanderings and the "Thanks" from Gyspy font and tied the tage to the top of the candle.
